Asbestos NESHAP Program

Department of Environmental Quality (DEQ) Asbestos NESHAP Program 

The Air Quality Division (AQD) of the DEQ has been delegated to implement the National Emission Standards for Hazardous Air Pollutants (NESHAP) program for asbestos in the state of Michigan. The asbestos NESHAP protects the public and environment by minimizing the release of asbestos fibers during renovation and demolition activities. Advanced notification is required to ensure all precautions are being taken to minimize asbestos emissions.

Oversight of this program includes receiving and reviewing Notifications of Intent to Renovate/Demolish Forms for content and completeness. This program is also responsible for conducting inspections of asbestos removal and demolition projects to determine compliance with the NESHAP regulations.
